Avocado Cream

I'm not sure if I am the only one, but I get a bit obsessive over new foods that I have just discovered.  This Avocado Cream is my new obsession and I can't believe I didn't try it before now.  I'll let you in on a little secret.  I don't like sour cream on it's own.  It there is a dollop on my food (when I go to a restaurant) I will politely scrap it all off and mix any white streaks left over into my food so I can't see it. 
This recipe for Avocado Cream would be fantastic on tacos or quesadillas!  |  mynameissnickerdoodle.com

Easy and Classic Potato Salad Made In The Instant Pot

I'll let you in on a secret.  Every year at this time I try to come up with the perfect potato salad recipe and I seem to fall short.  I either over boil the potatoes, don't add enough dressing or under season the entire thing.
I'm positive I've finally come up with the perfect recipe and I couldn't be more excited to share it with you.  One of the greatest things about it is that it's cooked in the Instant Pot.

If you've been around here long enough, you know that I love a good easy dinner recipe.  Every now and then I'll share recipes with a list of ingredients or something that has multiple steps.  Those definitely have their place at the dinner table, but I sure do enjoy making simple meals.
These Chicken and Pineapple Skewers have just three ingredients and can either be baked or grilled.  A perfect summer meal for sure!

I am a full believer that everyone should make this Raspberry Lemonade Pie this summer!  It's cool and super refreshing.  Make it for any BBQ party or just for a simple after dinner dessert.

3 Healthy On The Go Snacks

My blog typically isn't the place that you come to find healthy recipes.  Not that every recipe I share is complete comfort food, but it is nice and refreshing to come up new ways to eat more fruits and veggies.  Especially when they are fun on the go snacks in an adorable mason jar!

Strawberries And Cream Sugar Cookies

Having three little boys at home I have mixed feelings about summertime.  I really love sleeping in, there is no homework to oversee and of course I don't have to run around in the morning packing up lunches and backpacks!  However, it also means that my grocery bill goes up to keep a constant supply of snacks and popsicles on hand, trying to keep my boys entertained, and my house is in a constant state of messiness.
I have been better than I have past summers and trying to plan daily activities that are fairly simple, but fun.  Making cookies is a weekly event and we all loved these Strawberries and Cream Sugar Cookies.

Non-Alcoholic Strawberry Pina Coladas

I love a good mixed drink.  Especially if it's embellished with a cute little paper umbrella.  However, I don't drink alcohol so like to experiment with different flavors to mimic fun blended beverages.  This Non-Alcoholic Strawberry Pina Colada has now moved to the top of my list as my new favorite summer drink!
